This early 1960s pretty vintage nightgown is made of powder blue opaque nylon tricot and has a nice panel of lovely white lace that runs across each shoulder and across the top of the scoop neckline, both front and back. The bodice is gathered in the front and the front of the waistband is covered with a white lace panel. One nice detail of fabrication is a small ribbon which is sewn on the inner neckline to cover the raw edges of the inner lace.....thereby, keeping the decolletage area safe from any irritation from seams. There is elastic around the waistband and a pale blue satin ribbon ties around the back of the gown. This is not a full length gown, but, instead, a waltz-length gown. A very delicate and feminine find!
This nightgown has never been worn(Deadstock), as evidenced by the original folds and the string tag which is still in tact on the garment. There is one small mark on the ribbon and I have photographed this small spot in order that the perspective buyer can be made aware of this issue. I, suspect, as this gown is washable, this mark will come out with the first wash.
